This year for Mobile World Congress was a rebirth of sorts, owing largely to the restructuring of Samsung’s release schedule, Sony’s continued success with their Z series, Nokia’s push of Android, and the next big wave of wearables. We’ve also seen brands like Lenovo and HTC push hard with devices that aren’t aimed directly at the top tier. This is an interesting time for smartphones and mobile devices of all kinds - it’s no longer just about the biggest and the best.
As hotly-anticipated smartphones go, the Samsung Galaxy S5 ranked up there alongside the new iPhone, with all eyes on the dominant force in Android handsets at Mobile World Congress this year. Samsung didn't stint on the show, opening the launch with a full orchestra and then running through the new specs - fingerprint biometrics, a 16-megapixel camera, and more - in a huge press event that also saw it revamp its wearable companion range. As the dust settles, follow us on past the cut for all the key details about the new Galaxy S5.
This week the folks at HP’s tablet department have unveiled the HP ElitePad 1000 G2, a 10.1-inch tablet made for the business world - with a bunch of accessories to show for it. Here we’re seeing a slate that rolls with a 10.1-inch display with 1920 x 1200 resolution and an Intel Atom Bay Trail-T Z3795 quad-core 1.6GHz processor and integrated Intel HD Graphics inside. It’s also coming with Windows 8.1 Pro, ready for connectivity the likes of which we’ve never seen in a tablet before.
In addition to the ProPad 600 introduced today, HP has rolled out the red carpet for its 'total business solution' slate, the HP ElitePad 1000 G2. With the ElitePad 1000 comes a svelte design at 9.2mm thin and 1.5lbs, as well as Windows 8.1 Pro and options for enterprise users.
Today the folks at Samsung responsible for cameras and photography equipment have let it be known that the Samsung GALAXY Camera 2 and the NX30 are hitting the USA. These two devices were first shown to us up close and personal at CES 2014. We got to make the comparison GALAXY Camera vs GALAXY Camera 2 and had some first-impressions time with the Samsung NX30 as well. One has Android, the other most certainly does not.
Sony has revealed its latest Alpha camera, the A6000, a 24.3-megapixel compact DLSR slotting in-between the NEX-5T and the A65 and promising the fastest autofocus in the world. Measuring in at a 120 x 67 x 45 mm and 344g pre-lens, the A6000 has a new Exmor APS HD CMOS running through the same updated BIONZ X engine as in the A7 series, for an ISO range of 100-25600 and an autofocus lock in just 0.06 seconds. That's not all the makes the A600 look like it's shaping up to be one of the more interesting cameras of 2014, however.
